I actually never thought about that. I may just end up going that route. These tires are awesome for daily driving and if I went with the swampers they would give me max traction off road then wouldn't have to worry about ruining them on the road.

My buddy got a cool pic on the trail a few months ago. 255/85r16 KM2's.


They are bigger than they look I like the sleeper effect.


Yes those are both the same setup, other than booms in the front.

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

On my 03 Rubicon I have 285/75R16 MT/R's that were on there when I bought the Jeep in 2009. They are getting tired and hard, p/o didn't really rotate them properly so they are cupped too, a bit of tread life left but are getting quite noisy on the highway and on the way to the trail.

Jeep is mostly parked, used on nice days for a spin or long weekends wheeling trips any time of year. Lots of highway kilometers and long FSR drives to get to the trails.

Having a two year old and a wife going wheeling with me this summer, it's too loud back there for them!

I am considering going with a skinnier 255/85R16 to go on to the moabs. Can you guys comment on road noise etc and if you feel any difference in wheeling capability. A lighter load range would be nice too since E is overkill imho. But I do like the fact that I haven't had one puncture or a bead seating problem with the MT/R's.

I air down the MT/R's to around 10psi wheeling and on road they are at around 28.

I was considering the KM2's.

Thanks a lot.

Gethin.

I run 33 x 10.5 KM2's. They are the best tire I have ever run. I have run tires of all sizes and widths over the years and prefer a skinnier tire. There are many reasons for that, lower unsprung weight, tuck neatly when at full stuff, etc. Tire width is a subject that has been and will be debated until the end of the world. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference. I prefer skinny. I typically air down to 8 - 10 PSI when on the rocks, and run them at 28 PSI for daily driving. I have never lost the bead. They have performed flawlessly with everything have thrown at them (slickrock, sand dunes, granite boulders, mud, etc...). The KM2's are the most quiet mud terrain I have ever run, and are even more quiet than many all-terrains I have had. Hope my experience helps you out...

Cheers!

Thanks for the feedback, so you have them mounted on 15" rims? Might have to pick up some steelies then....cragar soft 8's perhaps?

Do you have anymore pictures of this rig. How are you doing with that dana 30 and that tire size? Do you have wheel spacers?

I haven't really taken any pics of it wheeling I live in a Lil hick a** town in Texas with no where to wheel. But when I do wheel it's mostly mud I don't really like rocks. But Dana 30 is still running strong I'm in the process of trying to move back to Florida so it mostly stays parked. No wheel spacers the rims are 15x10 with 2.5" bs. I've ran 35's for about 5 years now no problems. When I do go mudding I creep ill get on the gas if I have to but other then that its good. I still need gears and chromoly's. it has 3.73s
